Richard Hammond's Invisible Worlds

Richard Hammond journeys into the parallel universe that lies beyond the limits of the naked eye. Transported into the heart of the action, viewers are immersed in a breathtaking journey of discovery. The human eye takes about 50 milliseconds to blink, but it takes our brain around 150 milliseconds to process what we see. The latest advances in imaging technology enable time to be effectively stretched, revealing the extraordinary things occurring during those missing milliseconds. Did you know that air can shatter rock, water can tear through metal, lightning can strike upwards, and that the fastest life on Earth are microscopic fungal spores? Richard discovers that it's as much the things we cannot see as those we can that shape our lives. 3 episodes.
